Abstract

The mild technique provides an attractive early option for the treatment of symptomatic lumbar spinal stenosis after failed injection therapy, but before more invasive surgical treatment. For 17 patients with 1-year follow-up, the mild procedure provided significant pain relief and increased mobility. This procedure leaves no implants behind, and therefore does not limit subsequent, more invasive procedures that require implants.
